of the united states? that is what chuck hagel who has been nominated to be secretary of defense has been proposing. he has said so many things against us even as a nation being nuclear armed and ready, that it is very disturbing to people all across the country. bill: if you think that, do you think we've lost the argument with iran over its nuclear program? is that time passed? >> well, i think that the time has passed. they now view it as, us versus them. sanctions have worked to lower the value of their currency. sanctions have had an impact on people through throughout the country of iran. but i don't believe they have had the impact that has been desired against the iranian government. bill: why are we sitting down and talking again? what's the expectation from something like this? >> i think very little would be expected. i would expect the iranians to have their arms folded in front of their chest and sitting there, perhaps, listening, but basically they're continuing to run out the clock. they may even talk a little bit about wanting to negotiate but they have no interest in, my
this afternoon the senate finally voted to confirm president obama's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel. it was a vote long overdue. for weeks republicans had attacked hagel's policies, his competence, and even his patriotism. >> our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment. >> isn't it interesting that iran supports chuck hagel's nomination to be secretary of defense. >> it may be that he spoke at radical or extreme groups or anti-israel groups and accepted compensation. we don't know. >> that's right. they didn't know if he accepted money from extreme groups. because he didn't. the attacks from the right were especially poisonous because they were so personal. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican he attacked president bush mercilessly. >> it was all about a grudge. john mccain and other republicans didn't like hagel because he opposed the iraq war and made president bush look bad. they even took the unprecedented step of filibustering hagel nearly two weeks ago. something that had never happened to a defense nominee b

controversial nominees came up for senate votes today and both advanced. mike emanuel has results. >> chuck hagel was confirmed as defense secretary despite the lackluster performance in front of the senate armed services committee and controversial comments he made about irap and israel. the vote was 58 to 41 with democrats and four republicans backing him. today, the number two ranked republican crushed his former colleague. >> there is simply no way to sugar coat it. senator hagel performance before the senate armed services committee was inept. we should not install defense secretary who is not qualified for job. >> in case colleagues were considering make hagel wait longer a democrat warned one day it will be a g.o.p. president's nominee. >> i say to the republican friends, just be careful. i say this with respect. some day the friends on the other side. 71 senators voted to end debate. the former white house chief of staff budget director jack lew's nomination brought up for consideration. i'd half o ahead of the vote, they talked about the money and benefits earned when he wasn't in
